I think it acts like a heatshield. So the hot exhaust gases don't affect ambient air temperature of the engine bay. Our stock headers came with a heatshield btw but it is a metal one.

Hopefully you dont feel a huge power gain! Your not supposed to get it too hot for the first while, which means keeping the RPMs low for a couple days!

just wait till we get a downpipe with a racing cat- idcivic has one from ebay and he says it works wonders.

Yeah, with the stock downpipe and the close couped(sp?) cat. There really isn't much gain. Sure do look nice though.

Yeah I put the racing downpipe on, its a good combo with the DC header, only problem is I am not using the 2nd o2 sensor, I am about to hook up an o2 simulator I bought that simulates the cat's readings at different RPM's. I just gotta figure out the wires to hook it on my ecu!
